Sun experiencing period of low activity, won’t cause an ice age, NASA says

As per scientists at NASA, the sun is currently in a ’Grand Solar Minimum’ state. The last time this level of ’solar minimum’ state occurred was between 1650 and 1715. The sun, otherwise, experiences regular 11-year intervals including energetic peaks of activity, followed by low points. In a solar minimum, the sun is much quieter, with less sunspots and energy.

It was cause by global warming.

The Vostok ice core data from over a half million years shows that the earth cycles by 13°c on a very periodic basis that is likely caused by astronomical variation in orbit of the earth around the sun. That data shows we are in an interglacial maximum and it's actually cooler than most, but the thing humanity has most to fear is when we return to the next ice age. New York's Central Park has a stone outcropping with huge scratches that were embedded into the rock when a 2000' deep glacier stood where the city is today. The next ice age will likely result in glaciers covering Canada and most of the cities in the USA North of DC. Starvation and disease would kill off 95% of the world's population... But hey, Global Warming is a problem?

I really can't put into words how happy I will be when the climate change dopes are proven wrong. They scare everyone, but particularly children the most. The sun, earth, planets, will do what they have been doing for a very (insert many verys) long time. We have proof of the whole glacial cycle, but, for some reason people think it's done cuz humans are here. Makes no sense, Greta.

Well of course they say that. They have to because they've been saying for decades that solar cycles don't effect climate in order to defend anthropogenic climate change hysteria.

So we can predict the "cycles" of activity of a gigantic exploding ball of hydrogen but when it comes to predicting "man made climate change" there are too many variables. WHAT? Am I the only one who thinks these "experts" makes this up as they go along?

So we're placing bets on whether the cold weather will be severe or not, this will settle the man-made global warming debate?

It's kind of a given that this will not cause an ice age to begin, given that the Earth is currently in an ice age already...

What idiot asked if this would cause an ice age?

I just want to get the science right. Global warming raises the temperature and causes the icecaps to melt. The melting ice cause the oceans to get colder. Or there are polar vortexes making for colder winters. Then this stuff with the sun is causing the temperature to drop further. Maybe not an ice age but based on the combination of th two things it sounds like it's supposed to be extremely cold going forward. Is this right? Maybe someone with a better grasp on what climate change is supposed to mean can tell me. Set aside your opinion on the subject and explain what I got wrong about the theory around climate change.

Everyone wants to take a side on this subject, I'll take the Pentagon's side on the matter along with NASA. Man made climate change is real but the effects to what middle aged or older people will be likely minimal. Bigger issues are ahead for many future generations.
